    Cool shot. Thanks for the link DF. I like learning about this.

    Just to digress a bit, if they remake E.T., what bike will Elliot ride?

    Not what I was expecting, but since you ask. A really long lens will visually "compress" the elements in the frame giving the allusion that the objects are closer together then they are. A really well done image by a photographer that has a good understanding of the art.

    Actually, I did not ask.... the guy from i09 asked. See the headline of the linked article.
